    I want to go auto locker since I'm on a budget (don't want to spend more than $500) but I also don't want obnoxious chirping around turns. Any suggestions fellas?

    the tires do the chirping not the locker.

    locked=chirp
    unlocked=no chirp

    mine is on its way out. I currently have LSD and the outside tire was sounding like it was being dragged around turns. I changed the diff oil but it just progressively got worse and is now started to squeel a bit and from what i have read, that is the sound of it dying.
